    Once called a “Shangri-La for property owners” by the Wall Street Journal, Stafford is a city with a unique advantage for homeowners. The city hasn’t levied a municipal property tax since 1995—the many commercial, manufacturing, wholesale, retail, and service industries pay sales and franchise taxes to the city. Another unique thing about Stafford is that it has its own school district—the school system is the only municipal school district in Texas.

    Located just 21 miles southwest of Houston, this diverse city offers more than a nice tax haven. It offers a small-town feel that’s close to all the events and amenities of the region. Stafford is just 11 miles from NRG Stadium where the Houston Texans play and the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is held. The Houston Children’s Museum, as well as Space Center Houston, are about a half hour away. The town is also close to the many attractions at the Kemah Boardwalk or Galveston Bay.

    Closer to home, Stafford’s 18,000 residents can enjoy 35 acres of green space, six city parks, the Stafford Centre, Civic Center, and a Hindu temple carved out of Italian marble and Turkish limestone.

    Whether you’re new to town or a long-time member of the community, Reliant is here to help residential customers find the right energy plan and electricity prices for your needs.

    As one of the top Texas electricity companies in the deregulated energy market, we take pride in providing you with the highest level of energy service, easy-to-use tools to help you manage your account, and a wide range of electric plans.
